tv CNN Newsroom With Fredricka Whitfield CNN June 26, 2016 11:00am-12:01pm PDT
thanks to all of you for being part of my program this week. i'll see you next week. xbl hello, everyone, i'm fredericka whitfield. happening in new york city, thousands of people are taking to the streets to celebrate gay pride and honor the victims of the orlando shooting. hillary clinton is marching in the parade and you'll see her right there in green. pulse nightclub owner is also attending today's events two weeks after that deadly shooting in orlando. and nypd is dramatically increasing its presence at this year's parade but stressed that so far there has been no credible threats to the parade or any other events this
weekend. cnn's chris welch is live in new york city. what are people thinking and feeling? >> reporter: well, fred, a couple of weeks ago there was a lot of people voicing concern they might not be able to get out and show pride and celebrate two weeks after what happened in orlando. take a look behind me right now. we're in the heart of new york city's west village. here you can see there are members here from new york city council walking down. you just mentioned hillary clinton, she's just a few blocks away from us where we are right now. obviously the crowds are huge, the mayor had predicted we could see more than last year's record numbers of 1.6 million, they do expect that to be even greater this -- address the issue whether or not -- here's what he told us earlier. >> i think it is an act of defiance on one level to come out and say we stand by our
values, ininclusion and love and tolerance and we're standing up loud and proud and saying it embraces all people. i think there's a somber feeling obviously and pain over what happened in orlando but the answer is to stand up boldly and that's what new york city is doing today. >> fred, there's certainly no shortage of proud people out here today. we spoke to a couple to find out why it was important to be here. take a listen. >> i got married three years ago and it's legal and we love it and we're really happy, share with the world. >> what do you want to show the world in the wake of orlando? >> that love is love. i know it's trite but it's true, love is love. >> reporter: there's no question security is tight. the mayor also telling us they've increased their security in a number of areas. counterterrorism efforts and they have hundreds and hundreds more security personnel than they did at this parade last
year. >> thank you so much. chris welch there in manhattan. we're learning new details how things went down during the shooting two weeks ago. the orange county sheriff's office releasing a 21-page report from officers who rushed to the scene, one recalling that he saw people running out of the club covered in blood. nick val ens ya breaks down the accounts. >> reporter: the first report came two minutes after 2:00 a.m. 2:05, an all out barrage was the account. he assisted a victim while the active shooter continues firing within the pulse nightclub, deputy fiddler immediately sees
three to four bodies lying in the parking lot. another officer, i observed individuals running out of the club covered in blood with gunshot wounds and many more in the parking lot also with gunshot wounds. as more survivors pour out from the nightclub officers try to get information about the shooter inside but are unable. responding deputies describe a state of panic. in the 21 pages of police narratives released to the media, the reports detail the chaos. many had gunshot wounds and some who had been carried over appeared to be dead. deputy raymond writes, he and other officers begin to search victims extracted from the club, separating them by level of injury and there are also concerns of also improvised explosive devices outside the pulse nightclub. john eric sanchez writes about going inside the club while the gunman is still in there and begins evacuating businesses
from bathrooms on the west side of the club. just before 3:00 a.m., officers have already established a perimeter and wait for the swat team. by 5:00 a.m., police breach the walls and the attack is over, three hours after it began. in the wake of the shooting, police are surrounded by the carnage of the deadliest mass shooting in modern u.s. history. >> nick with us live now. how does this report fill in the blanks? >> we know -- we had a sense of the time line coming in today but there's very little emotion in them but you have to think what the officers saw and it's going to stay with them forever. it was 193 minutes from the point that the first gunshots were fired and first police of gunshots to the point where that terrorist was pronounced dead. there's criticism lobbed towards the police, could they have done more? did they wait too long to go in? from these records we see there
was officers going in and out of the club. they were going into the club. there was a period of time that there was hostage negotiators talking to this subject. but it is just a chilling account to think about what these officers saw and first responders and what they had to go through moments after that shooting happened. deadliest in u.s. history. >> it is incredible. thanks so much. we appreciate it. meantime, people attending a gay pride parade in st. peters burg florida paid tribute to those killed in orlando. people carrying 49 signs each bearing the name of a vick victim. seven wounded are still in the hospital and three in critical condition. the shooting in orlando carried out by the shooter who was an american born muslim prompted donald trump to double down on his proposed muslim ban but now says he would only block
immigrants with countries tied to terror. we'll talk about this shift next. ing a part of helping people in need is who i am. working at brookdale for me is not just a job, it's a life for me. i love it. i formed many connections with the residents. i feel like i am part of their family and they're part of mine. if you can get up in the morning, ya know, shake the dust and go up there and make somebody happy, when i go to sleep, i did my job. all the other guys are talking about these days is how good their coverage is. but only one network is giving you more than just great coverage. t-mobile! only t-mobile's lets you stream video and music - for free! not only that, but we doubled our lte coverage in the last year. that's right! our coverage now stacks up with anybody. including verizon and at&t. so now you can get rid of the other guys and get great coverage from t-mobile. we got you covered. and we won't stop!

welcome back, democratic presumptive nominee hillary clinton is taking a double dij i had lead over donald trump. 12 points between them in a new poll. this as the republican presumptive nominee is narrowing the focus of the most divisive issue of his campaign. his proposed ban on muslims entering the u.s. this all started last december following the san bernardino terror attack. here's how trump's language has evolved since. >> donald j. trump is calling for
a total and pleat complete shutdown of muslims entering the united states until our country's representatives can figure out what the hell is going on. >> when my friends call me up and call me up very strongly and say, it's something -- these are muslims and say it's something donald that has to be talked
about. >> but they don't support the ban? >> not really. why would they support the ban? without the ban you're not going to make the point. >> is there anything you heard that makes you want to rethink this position? >> no. no. i called for a ban after san bernardino and met with great scorn and anger. it will be lifted, this ban, when and as a nation we're in a position to properly and perfectly screen these people coming into our country. >> now trump says he would only ban muslims from nations tied to terrorism tweeting this, we
must suspend immigration from regions linked with terrorism until a proven vetting method is in place. i never liked the media term mass deportation but we must enforce the laws of the land. joining me now, ben ferguson and okay lee mckennedy, also a trump
supporter by the way. i think people know that by now but just in case. this change in language, does this demonstrate donald trump can't decide how to back his own ideas? >> i don't thing so. it shows he's a negotiator and he's flexible and willing to change on the margins. this isn't a complete flip. it's a deeper nuance. senator cruz and senator paul suggested banning terrorism from hot bed countries and it's a stark contrast to president obama where he doesn't work with congress. he uses executive order or democrats republicans put forward an amendment, smart proposal to make it hard for people on the terror watch list to get guns, he can break gridlock and bring change to america. >> who is he associating with, when he says people who are
linked to countries where there's terrorism, does that mean france where there were terrorist attacks or belgium. what does he mean by that? >> he means what the bill senator paul put forward said, countries like syria and iraq. he listed 12 or so countries where there needs to be a temporary halt. we've been warned by the cia director and fbi, we can't vet these people accurately. people are getting into the country, like who killed 12 in san bernardino. >> establish conservatives distancing themselves from donald trump in in large part one of the reasons why, whether it's those coming from terrorist states, just look at the most recent people and repulse and conservative george will and
skocroft, we don't want anything to do with donald trump? >> one, donald trump, who is he negotiating with? i think he's negotiating with the american people. you realize that a total and absolute ban was way too extreme for the average american voter for the general election. what you see him negotiating is saying okay, let me clarify and be more clear and concise about what i'm actually intending to do. that would be specifically going to terrorism hot bed countries. >> does that also speak to those critics who say he's too knee jerk? shouldn't he think this through before presenting his idea proposal as opposed to back peddling? >> that's one of the reasons why you seen him have some problems in the polls recently and establishment individuals taking big shots at him saying that he is not thought out his position to his policies well enough. i think that's one of the
reasons why when you saw donald trump earlier this week have his real layout of the attack on hillary clinton and talked about policy issues while using a script that was well thought out, people said okay, this is what we need more of from donald trump. here's the big issue, when you're donald trump and you come out and change things a little bit, you have a big issue, do you end up alienating your base which supported you. his first 100 day plan there was no -- people that supported you in the primaries that love this ban aus muslims coming to the country. now it looks like you're more of a moderate now. i do think we have a problem with middle eastern country and terrorism and people coming into the country right now. we don't have a good enough way to vet them. we've seen them from the cia director. he was very clear before congress. i think there's some meat and potatoes here to this policy. the question is, does he
alienate his core supporters at the same time when he starts to shift a little bit. >> you brought up the issue of scripting, now he's appealing to people in a different way because he is more scripted. are we going to see more of that in a donald trump, is that his attempt to be more presidential, being more careful about his language because it's on copy? >> i think that's part of it. he's been pushed by republican leaders to adopt a pel prompter a bit. he doesn't like it, pushed back. inside advisers said he doesn't want to do. >> and a lot of supporters liked the fact he was unscripted. now what? >> this is where it's a delicate balance for donald trump. they love is candid and off the cuff. how does he get to this part where he negotiates between having some scripted speeches and not losing the candid nature. very different philosophies and how do you get to middle ground.
it's a very tough balance. >> let me ask you about something else that lays the groundwork coming up to the convention. a virginia delegate bound to trump for the election suing officials citing his right to free speech. are you afraid of this movement to unbid delegates could pose a threat in the. >> no, the will of the people is out. they've spoken more votes in republican presidential history. i'm not concerned about unbound delegates, attempts to stop him every way of the way. and this is going to continue but the people have spoken and the republican party would be insane really to come out and try to squel much the people now -- it's not going to happen. >> you have opportunists here today and there's a lot of people around the campaign trying to make it the most for themselves. when you sue and know the rules
of the game beforehand, you're trying to make a name for yourself and make waves and become -- here's your 15 minutes of fame. i don't put a lot of stock into this. i don't see that many doing this. there are some opportunists and anybody that komsz out against donald trump, you're immediately going to get attention or you don't want to be bound to him, you're immediately going to get attention. >> you just don't think there's a real viable route here? >> no i don't. i think people keep going down this road are trying to keep their name in the press and keep reminding people that they are anti-donald trump. i said early on, not a hillary guy. he is the party's nominee. it happens where people get their feelings hurt and could is a coalescing behind the -- people trying to make themselves bigger than they really are. >> thanks to both of you,
appreciate it. much more later, also still to come, scotland is now threatening to block the brexit vote and millions have signed a petition for a do-over. david mckenzie is following this for us. david? >> reporter: that's right. the uk could be splitting up because scotland wants to remove itself over the brexit and more than 3 million signed this petition but is it on some level a fraud? that's next. the fastest delivery guy in chicago. meet maximum strength mylanta®. like owen, it works fast. unlike him, it makes heartburn go away. strong and soothing. new mylanta®. faster than heartburn.

first global stock markets getting ready to open overnight in asia and we could be in store for more turmoil after the united kingdom voted to leave the european union. the chinese finance minister weighing in saying, quote, the vote will cast a shadow over the global economy. on friday markets around the world plummeted here in the u.s. the dow dropped more than 600 points by the end of the day. and just days after the united kingdom voted to leave the european union, we're seeing a major roadblock. scotland's political leader is saying that country might try to block brexit from even happening. the scottish first minister saying today, if the scottish parliament is judging this on the basis of what's right for
scotland, the option of saying we're not going to vote for something that's against scotland's interests, that's got to be on the table. you're not going to vote for something that is not in scotland's interest. scottish voters of course were split on the britain -- on britain with that issue. and now in britain, more than 3 million people have signed a petition calling for yet another vote. british prime minister david cameron is facing increased pressure to speed up the exit from office and find the person who will replace him. tomorrow u.s. secretary of state john kerry heads to belgium and uk. he'll meet with his counterpart to talk about the fallout from the brexit vote and growing security concerns over syria and isis. david mckenzie is in scotland. how serious is the threat to block all of this?
>> reporter: well, fred, it's certainly anything is seen as serious because the uk as a whole united kingdom does face an existent shal threat if scotland decides to try to leave it to keep in the european union. the scottish parliament may be allowed to veto the exit of the uk from the eu but it's all very sort of hazy legal territory. what is more likely in fact is that she brings forward an independence referendum which people here in scotland say they certainly would want to push for independence and maybe that's another option for scotland to break with the rest of the uk but keep with the eu. >> so that must mean that the folks in scotland are very much in favor of the british petition. now you've got, what, 3 million
signatures on a petition to say we want a do-over. >> well, that's right. and the irony here is that the gentlemen who started the petition turns out to be a supporter of the leave campaign. he put that in some time ago, that petition, if it gets 100,000 votes it can be considered to be debated in the uk parliament. it has gotten over 3 million and now an investigation is ensuing that potentially more than 70,000 of those votes were fraudulent, hack job of some kind but still, 3 million, a huge number and does show on some level the regret or the angst as it were of voters who voted to stay but lost the day and this could have a possible impact for generations here in the uk. >> david mckenzie, thank you so much. appreciate it.

welcome back. ha with a ee becomes the first to put gun owners in a federal database. it is operated by the fbi and would notify police when gun owners arrested for a crime anywhere in the united states until now the database was used to monitor arrests of people in positions of trust like school teachers or day care workers and anyone under investigation already. this comes on the heels fz congressional democrats staging a sit-in on the house floor demanding votes on gun control legislation. a recent nbc wall street journal poll shows 50% of voters are
concerned that the government will go too far in restricting guns. state democratic representative carl rhodes joining me now on the phone. i understand mr. representative, you strongly supported this legislation. why? >> we were trying to keep certain categories of people from getting weapons as stalkers -- actually three bills we passed this year, one would make it so stalkers made it difficult for stalkers to get them for the severely mentally ill and disqualifying events for owning a gun in hawaii and in addition we passed the program which did not create a federal database, there's always been a database controlled by counties in hawaii, you're already in a database. what this enters you into is the federal wrap back program. under federal law they are not allowed to keep data base.
if we change our policy and say we don't want to be in the program anymore, the federal government cannot keep that information. it's our data base and their program and it was set up for guns. i've seen the applications and one of the checkoffs is for guns and it's been designed for gun ownership too. >> how would this measure are advantageous? >> well, what it does, currently in hawaii, if you register in honolulu county, or any of the other three counties, if you commit a felony, you can be a perfectly law abiding citizen. if you committee a felony after you purchase the gun legally, there's no practical way to check. we have the legal authority to do about but in wrap back program was set up, we have no easy way to do it. there's hundreds and thousands of gun owners and we can go person by person to check to see if they committed a felony but this makes it automatic.
if somebody commits a felony in another county if they register in honolulu and commit a felony in maui, the police will be notified that somebody is indicted for the felony and look if that disqualifies them. if it does after the case has been included and if you're indicted and you are cleared of the charge, then you would not be disqualified. once the case is over we can determine whether you've committed the disqualifying act. >> the nra has responded by this tweeting this saying not only does the law affect hawaii residents. visitors must also register in the database. what's your response to that? >> when you bring a gun to hawaii you have to register within a very short period of time and you're already in a database. i mean, first principles of the second amendment says nothing about databases.
this is a federal law. the law that was passed in 1986 called the federal -- firearms protection act and it -- that's the law that is set up this prohibition on the federal government keeping data bases but there's nothing in the second amendment that says anything about whether you can be in a database or not. >> and then hawaii has joined other states that have passed laws and bauring people who stalked or commit sexual assault crimes from owning guns. after the terror attack in orlando, people want those on terror watch lists to be prevented from owning guns as well. we saw that at the heart of the sit-in that took place on capitol hill. where do you fall on that? >> well, in that case, these other three bills i did not introduce but did introduce a bill on the terrorism watch list that would make it so you can't purchase a gun in hawaii and that bill did not pass.
so it's not something on the table for now. but my feeling was if you're consider the dangerous enough by the federal government to be a terrorism watch list, we shouldn't be selling you a firearm. it doesn't make any sense. it's most of the time, the terrorism watch list is correct and occasionally it will be wrong but are we really willing to take that chance. when you see what happened in orlando, the same sort of thing can happen in any state of the union, including hawaii. >> hawaii state representative carl rhoads, thanks for your time. >> thank you. >> a 1,000 year flood leaving parts of west virginia devastated and there could be more flash flooding on the way. jen grass is there. >> reporter: utter devastation, that's how people are describing their neighborhoods at this point. we'll come back with stories of

daughter's pets and the water was to his ankles and four minutes later, only four minutes, that water was above his knees and took rescue with a woman on top of a roof, that's the only way they could survive. take a listen to their story. >> i got a second chance because it could have very easily been me and paul, you know, swept away trying to leave here on foot or taking off that roof, anything. so i know that i'm here, god left me here. >> you said you saw houses actually floating down the river, floating around you. >> saw houses coming off foundation, houses burning, of course cars, yeah, just all around. and just -- you know, you try to stay calm as much as you can because you know you'll have to save your life and a million things are going through your head. what if the house goes? what can you use to float with?
i was not prepared for something like this. >> so the man that she was on the roof yet, we have spoken to him. he watched as his ex-wife's car floated down the river. she was in that car and became perched in a tree and lasted there for a few hours and in the hospital recovering from all of the injury that's she received in this storm. there is so much devastation in this area. right now we're seeing bulldozers come about and volunteers from places all across the county coming here to try to help people recover but at this point, this particular community is pretty devastated, fred. >> it's good to see the other side of the story too because we did talk to paul yesterday and he was talking about that neighborhood. you found that neighborhood hearing her and the story and thank goodness for his quick thinking. he attributed in large part to
his military training because he didn't even think about his own personal safety from what we learned yesterday. he just kind of acted and he got that neighbor up on the roof top. pretty extraordinary story of survival. >> reporter: and that's what he said. he actually could have gotten out of here and had a way but saw kimberly and she was just crying on her doorstep. she didn't know what to do. it was he who brought her to the roof and they lasted there for six hours and water kept rising. they didn't know when it was going to stop. that's just a scary thing. no one expected this. it happened so quickly and no one had any idea if they were going to be alive the next day. >> amazing story of survival. we're glad both are okay and great to hear their stories and accounts of harrowing moments there. thank you so much. now to the massive deadly wildfire in southern california. firefighters are starting to

tomorrow the u.s. supreme court is said to issue a ruling on an abortion that could affect millions of women in this country. at issue a texas law that puts new restrictions on abortion clinics which could dramatically reduce the number of abortion clinics available to women. cnn's chris fraits joining me from washington. what's the expectation, chris? >> we expect protesters on both sides of this abortion issue to
flood the plaza of the supreme court tomorrow because the high court's expected ruling on a texas abortion law is sure to throw this controversial social issue back into the spotlight in the midst of a very heated presidential campaign. the supreme court is expected to rule tomorrow on most important abortion case in almost two decades, a decision that could affect millions across the country. at stake the fate of a texas law that requires abortion clinics to upgrade facility standards to more resemble hospitals and mandates that clinic doctors be able to admit patients to a local hospital. critics say it makes it safer. >> challenged by the abortion industry because they put profits ahead of health and safety. >> reporter: but opponents -- >> stop the shame. women's rights are not a game. >> they argue the restrictions are aimed at putting abortion clinics out of business. before the law there were 40
abortion clinics in texas. opponents say the law would shuder 75% of them. wait times are so long in texas she had to fly to california to get an abortion. >> getting on a plane and flying 1500 miles away is not an option for many, many of the women in our state. >> reporter: during oral arguments in march, the focus must be on ones who are burdened, this is not a problem for women who have means to travel. the three women on high court asked whether the law was medically necessary and if it places an undue burden on women. texas said yes the requirements are necessary and argued a majority of women in the state will live within 150 miles of an abortion clinic. texas's argument seals to be better received by the conservative justices who appeared skeptical the law was to blame for the closures. >> the three other conservatives willing to uphold it, justice kennedy is the swing.
will he join with the liberals and provide a fifth vote or join with conservatives and send it back to the lower court? >> now, if the high court deadlocks 4-4, the lower court ruling will be upheld and texas law will be allowed to go into effect closing all but a handful in the state. a tie would not set a new national precedent. on the other hand if the court were to strike down the law it could deliver a watershed delivery to supporters of abortion rights and deter others from passing other laws. >> thank you so much. appreciate it in washington. >> a tragic boat accident in california leaves three dead. we now know the names of the victims. the latest next. o paris. live in paris. when you airbnb, you have your own home. so, live there. even if it's just for a night. all the other guys are talking about these days is how good their coverage is.

the irish american crime boss's california apartment. the hat worn by bulger during his arrest went for $6400 while one ring went for $23,000. and in another auction this weekend, the infamous yellow cloud guitar played by prince sold for over $137,000. this served as the music icon's main guitar from 1988 to 1994. you might remember seeing it in most of his earlier videos and concerts. now for a look at what you can expect in this week's new episode of cnn's declassified. tonight we'll take you inside the hunt for one of history's most ruthless dictators, saddam hussein. >> i was a trained interrogator but never conducted a real live interrogation. the war is going on for three months and i get orders i'm going to go join this task force i never heard of.

at me and goes, how are we going to do this? i was a new interrogator, i did not have a plan but jeff and i looked at each other and we started asking questions. >> all right, the search for saddam hussein continues on declassified. you can watch the series tonight at 10:00 on cnn. you don't want to miss it. thanks so much for watching this hour. we have much more straight ahead right after this. thanks for joining me. republican presumptive presidential nominee donald trump is shifting his ban on muslims entering the u.s. tweeting this, we must suspend immigration from regions linked with terrorism until a proven vetting method is in place.
in scotland he visited his golf course there and also during the bombshell brexit results. now the clinton campaign is using his trip to scotland as fodder for a
new attack ad. >> global markets are plummeting. >> every president is tested by world events but donald trump things about how his golf club can profit. >> brand-new sprinkler system, highest level. >> talking about his new sprinkler system. >> in a volatile world the last thing we need is a volatile president. >> former speaker of the house newt gingrich says the results of the brexit vote have greater implications telling the atlanta journal constitution, i suspect after the brexit result hillary clinton must be pretty darn worried. there must be a tidal wave of anti-sentiment growing. let's talk more about this with
historian and professor there at princeton university, regional director for the 2012 obama campaign and supports hillary clinton. good to see all of you. where are you? there you are. let me begin with you. does gingrich have a point? this sentiment in great britain, is it similar to a sentiment growing in the u.s.? >> well, speaker gingrich is a fellow georgian but he's a little out of touch on this issue. if you look at what happened a day after brexit, you had a 300% increase of people going online, what is the eu and what happens if we leave the eu? there was a huge misunderstanding from the people in london uk and i wouldn't be surprised if donald trump and -- went to that but the hillary campaign has to be
